Summer Reusable Wood Trays for Leafcutter Bees – 6mm

Wood trays are long-lasting and reusable each year, retain nesting scent to attract next season’s bees, and are fastest to open for leafcutter bee cocoon harvest in the spring. Precision crafted of Northwest alder, our wood trays are a safe and natural nesting material for bees.

Reusable wood nesting trays are perfect for the serious leafcutter bee raiser!

Wood is a natural habitat for leafcutter bees and provides both insulation and moisture control – a natural wicking effect that pulls moisture from the wet pollen loaf, preventing moldy cocoons.

Reusable wood trays should be placed within a bee house to protect from rain.

• Reusable wood trays control year-to-year costs.

• Easy to open and clean to remove and harvest leafcutter bee cocoons in the spring.

• Scents left from previous leafcutter bees will attract next year’s generation of leafcutter bees.

• Nesting holes are 6mm in diameter, the preferred size of our summer leafcutter bees.

• Front is burnished, creating a visual pattern that helps the leafcutter bee find their home.

• Removable cardboard backing protects the leafcutter bees and encourages nesting.

• Pest Blocker fabric discourages parasitic wasps from entering the back of your wood nesting trays.

• Precision crafted of Northwest alder. Side notches lock into neighboring trays, retain alignment, and help block pests from entering on the side.

If you build your own bee house, ensure that your roof is 3″ longer than the wood trays.
